Important! If your pack, troop, crew, or ship is planning to do any type of recruitment this fall (I'm looking at you, Cub Scouts!) please have one of your leaders fill out this survey by Sunday, July 3rd!
It's painless and should only take 5 to 10 minutes, but will help your district leaders coordinate Rocket Into Scouting dates and resources to help you. Thank you so much! If you'd rather, you can also call Caleb at 724-8747 to run through the information.
Ko Olina District Events
Hello Ko Olina leaders,
It's summer and we're busy preparing for fall recruitment. Mahalo to the packs who have shared with us their back-to-school plans, and to Pack 121, which has already signed up for the Lions program! It's not too late to sign up, though--email me if your pack is interested!
Ko Olina District Roundtable is coming up on Thursday, July 14 at the Kalaeloa Chapel at 2074 Lauwiliwili St. in Kapolei, from 7 to 8:30 pm. Roundtable is a chance for you to network with other awesome leaders from the district, and includes breakout sessions for both Boy Scout and Cub Scout leaders, as well as training on Rocket Into Scouting (our fall recruitment program) and upcoming Scouting events around the island and the nation.
July 16: Cub Scout opportunities at the Pacific Aviation Museum
The Pacific Aviation Museum, a longtime provider of awesome programs for Boy Scouts, is offering a brand-new program just for Cub Scouts! For only $15, they can get a three-hour hands-on tour of the museum that includes exploration of a wide variety of aircraft and time on a flight simulator. The museum will be running a program for wolves and bears on July 16. See this flyer for more!
Planning to participate in the 2016 Trails End popcorn sale? The kickoff date is set for July 23rd, location to be announced. If you can join us--it'll be awesome--please email me--Caleb.Turner@scouting.org--and we'll keep you updated on popcorn sales!
Want to participate in VEX robotics?
Aloha Council has received a grant to loan a limited number of complete VEX IQ kits to interested packs and troops! The only requirement is to participate in at least one tournament. This is an incredible opportunity to bring your Scouts together and sharpen their STEM skills--but only 8 spots are fast, so if your unit is interested, please register as a team at http://www.robotevents.com/robot-competitions/vex-iq-challenge and then send the following information to Neal at firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your troop or pack number and chartering organization
- Location where the troop or pack meets
- Name of unit leader and name of team coach
- Names of team members and their grade levels
Several other troops and packs are already signed up. I'm looking forward to seeing some representation from Ko Olina District!
That's all for now--please don't hesitate to contact me if there's anything I can do for you. See you on the 14th!
